Pain under right side rib cage

I just found this board. I have a pain in my right side when laying down. There is no pain when working walking sitting driving, just at night when I try to sleep. It seems to be halfway up my right side and maybe a little toward my back. I can't remember when it started but it has been at least a month that I have noticed it. When I go to bad and lay on my stomach it hurts, when I lay on my left side it hurts and right side and back it isn't as bad. I do a lot of walking and climbing in my job and have no pain at all, I do have knee pain on my right knee so I am wondering if it could be related. I an sure more info is needed so ask away!

Re: Pain under right side rib cage

There could be another forum you could post in with right side rib pain. However, I can tell you that I have lower back issues; herniated disk L5-S1 on the left, for several years. I have also had right side low ribcage aching that comes and goes, and keeps me from sleeping sometimes as well. I had liver and gall bladder checked....and both are ok. It sometimes radiates to the back....and while it isn't serious pain, it is uncomfortable and irritating. Somestimes I lay on a heating pad to try to go to sleep and my gastroenterologist said if it it.

I think it can all be muscular-skeletal related. Not sure this is helpful to you but it is my experience....and it is frustrating for sure.
